How Do We Protect the Security of Your Information?
If you enter credit card payment information (for example, American Express, MasterCard or Visa information) to purchase SIGNA equipment, supplies or services, that information is encrypted and protected with industry standard encryption software. SIGNA currently uses Secure Socket Layer technology (SSL) to protect such information and ensure that credit card transactions are secure.
We protect our databases with various physical, technical and procedural measures and we restrict access to your information by unauthorized persons. Our information systems are maintained behind a software firewall to isolate them from access by other networks connected to the Internet. All information transmitted through SIGNA.com is stored on our secure server. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, which is the electronic commerce standard for securing information as it travels over the Internet. SSL technology is designed to encrypt your information, preventing an unauthorized party from viewing and downloading your information. Your web browser should display a web address with an "https" prefix, indicating that the SSL technology is operating when using certain portions of our website.
Is Information Shared with Third Parties?
We do not rent, sell, or exchange your names to third-party companies for their marketing purposes. We do provide your information to reputable organizations that help us to fulfill your order. For example, we use companies to verify and process credit card transactions, to deliver packages, to schedule and perform product installations and to administer service programs. We may share information with others who help us analyze sales data, maintain our records, and provide other services for SIGNA. We may also share your information with companies that act on our behalf and at our direction to notify you of additional SIGNA products and services. These companies may also conduct customer satisfaction surveys and manage other customer services and benefits for us. These third parties are not authorized to use your information for any reason other than to perform their contractually assigned functions.
Any information we collect about you or your computer is used exclusively by SIGNA to enhance and improve your visits to our site, or to provide you with requested information, products or services. For example, when a customer submits credit card information to SIGNA in order to place an online order, such personal information is used only for payment and shipping purposes. We may similarly share data with our affiliates and contractors in order to help us analyze such information, assess usage trends, improve site layout or design, or to maintain or upgrade our software and web capabilities. However, no personal information is distributed to third parties for direct marketing or solicitation purposes. If SIGNA or substantially all of its assets are targeted for acquisition, customer information may be disclosed on a confidential basis as part of the due diligence or investigative efforts of the potential third party acquirer. In the event of any actual acquisition, such information would be transferred as part of the transaction to the acquirer.
